Ph 13-8 Mo is a martensitic precipitation-hardening stainless steel that has excellent strength, high hardness, superior toughness, and good corrosion resistance. Good transverse toughness properties are achieved by tight chemical composition control, low carbon content, and vacuum melting. The alloy is produced by vacuum induction melting (VIM) followed by electro-slag remelting (ESR).
As a Tier 1 Aerospace company, Airbus holds its subcontractors to the same standards by ensuring they source material per ZBF301348 from approved sources. This creates accountability and ensures the highest quality standards are achieved in the manufacturing process.
13-8 Stainless Steel is used in Aerospace components, landing gear, nuclear reactor components, petrochemical industry, injection molding equipment etc.
PH 13-8 Mo Stainless Steel in the annealed condition can be strengthened further by relatively low temperature heat treatment. Fighter Jet Metals offers PH 13-8 Mo in the Annealed, H950, H1000, H1025, H1050, H1100, and H1150 Heat Treated conditions.
